Strange forms of payment

SO what are some forms of payment you have gotten other then cash?

So far i have been given a 98 caddy Eldorado, guy owned me 500.00 on a 1500 dollar job. Had no money so he gave me the car. It was in perfect condition. Had it sold with in 4 hours of getting it.

Next would be with cookies. Have a little old lady who is at least 90 years old. She is on a very tight budget, so every week I have a fresh batch of either choc chip or oatmeal raisin cookies. love that account lol.

I have one commercial property i take care of in exchange for discounts on crain time. Comes in handy on tree jobs.

I take care of the Gravley dealer and get credit from them each time. Kind of nice, have not had to come out of pocket for supplies at all this year.

I traded a junk Bobcat for money owed for service. Used it to bring back the old 843 I got from somewhere else.

I've gotten a push mower for picking up a couple of bags of mulch for a neighbor and an edger for mowing for another neighbor while they were away.

Did a stone wall and mulch job. Guy said if I do it over the weekend to suprise his wife he would throw in a brand new never shot TC Omega muzzle loader. Did it ASAP and finished on a Sunday night. I am using it in an elk hunt next year.
